Updated: Apr 27


‘Tis the season!


It's time to start planning your annual family photoshoot! Oh, what FUN! I know the stress of the holidays can feel a bit overwhelming at times, but capturing your Christmas photos shouldn't! Here are my 6 easy steps to help you make this year’s photoshoot the best one yet.


Cue the Christmas carols!




1. Plan ahead.


The holiday season is hectic, there are no two ways about it, and leaving photoshoot preparations for the last minute will only add to the madness of it all. That’s why it’s so important to plan, plan, plan!! I can’t stress this enough. Think about outfits well in advance, do some research on the style you’re going for, and work out the logistics for the day of the shoot.


If you’re shooting with me, I’ll be in touch as soon as you’ve booked your session to assist with the process. I want this experience to be as joyful and stress-free as possible! Just a heads up, I launch my Christmas packages mid-September and start shooting soon after so like I said, plan ahead!!




2. Choose your clothing carefully.


Outfits can make or break a photoshoot. No pressure!!
